Introducing Claire Coles
Time for my next in the series on my fellow Perrier-Jouet Arts Salon members. This time I’m introducing Claire Coles.
Claire is a textile artist, specialising in making large embroidered couture wall papers and panels. She draws with a sewing machine in the same way as you might draw with a pen or pencil.
I first encountered Claire’s work when she had an exhibition at Flow Gallery last year. She was commissioned by Perriet-Jouet to produce some embroideries that were then turned into boxes and bags for the Champagne.
It was a great exhibition and my first introduction to the world of Perrier-Jouet (I didn’t know it at the time but shortly after the opening I was invited to become a member of the Arts Salon). I didn’t get to meet Claire that night but am grateful to Perrier-Jouet for giving me the opportunity to at the first Salon meeting.
